Our friends at Overland Journal define Overlanding as “Vehicle-supported, self-reliant adventure travel, typically exploring remote locations and interacting with cultures.”
Overlanding can be very different for each individual or group and can be anything from a quick weekend getaway, covering a hundred miles of gravel roads to an intense month-long off road, cross country adventure. The key difference between overlanding and traditional offroading is the exploration and adventure aspect. While overlanding trips still involve offroading and sometimes challenging terrain, the payoff is not conquering an obstacle but soaking in the experience, scenery, culture, etc.
Warrior Products has developed several vehicle-specific and universal products with overlanding in mind. Overlanding is firmly rooted in the idea of being self-reliant, which often means bringing a large amount of gear, replacement parts and supplies with you on your journey. Warrior has a number of innovative gear management and storage products specifically designed with the Overlander's needs in mind. Warrior’s Platform Racks are light weight, heavy duty and low profile, giving Overlanders additional storage options, without increasing the height of the vehicle (or center of gravity) more than necessary. These racks are also compatible with a wide variety of accessories including our innovative QuickLatch Mounts, MOD Box, No-Drill Spare Tire Carrier and more. These Platform Racks are also ideal for roof top tents and awnings.
In addition to Platform Racks Warrior also offers unique interior gear management and storage solutions, like our Tailgate Table Storage System for the Jeep Wrangler, YJ, TJ/LJ, JK/JKU and JL/LJU. This unique product combines extremely efficient lockable storage, with a heavy-duty table and integrated PALS pattern throughout, which accepts standard MOLLE bags and pouches. With limited weight and storage capacity, comes the need for multi-purpose products. Single-use items are almost never part of an overlander's toolbox. Warrior's feature-rich Tailgate Table Storage System screams multi use. Check out the product page for more details and to learn how this innovative product will become a must have for your overlanding rig.
